[laughter] >> let me mention three things. three things that will be on the radar we should be aware of here in washington dc. then we can actually get back to the broader discussion. so if tom was talking about the media game, asia sees itself as a long-term game. they view what is going on here in those terms. it's not something -- they don't think it's going to be resolved tomorrow. whether it's not just china, it's japan and india, at southeast asia looking over long-term to understand what the correlation and balance of power is going to become. so part of the f
